Enjoy a flavorful, juicy burger with a Hawaiian teriyaki twist.
Course: Main Course
1lb.lean ground turkey
1small yellow or red oniondiced
1clovegarlic, minced (or 2 tsp garlic powder)
1can sliced pineapple
Salt & pepper to taste
Start by combining all the ingredients, minus the salt and pepper, in a large mixing bowl. It’s important to get them mixed together well. The best way to do that is to just get in there with your hands and mix it up.
Once it’s mixed, divide it into four equal parts. You don’t have to weigh them for exact portions, just go by sight and get them as equal as possible. I like to roll them into balls for the best estimate. This method also makes forming the burger patties really easy.
Form your patties and place them on parchment paper. Then sprinkle them with salt and pepper.
Place the patties in the freezer to allow them to set up. This makes for an easier transfer to the hot grill when the grill is preheated (about 20 minutes).
Light your grill and set up for medium-high direct heat.
Once your grill is preheated, remove the turkey burgers from the freezer. Give them a light coating of olive oil. You can also use a non-stick cooking spray. Place the burgers on the grill directly over the hot coals.
Grill them for four minutes per side, with a 90-degree turn at the halfway point. Then flip the burgers and add the pineapple slices directly over the coals.
Cook both the burgers and pineapple for 2 minutes. Then flip the pineapple, turn the burgers 90 degrees, and add the optional cheese. Place the lid on the grill and allow them to grill for another 2 minutes to melt the cheese.
Check the burgers’ internal temperature with a reliable quick-read thermometer. They should be around 160 °F. Remove the burgers and pineapple from the grill and place them on the buns.
What you’ll find here is a grilled turkey burger that even a triple-cheeseburger-loving guy like me is proud to serve. As humbly as possible, I’ll say this burger is damn delicious. This grilled turkey burger is made with a Hawaiian flavor profile, using both pineapple and a teriyaki glaze. But these burgers can go in so many directions once you know how to keep them moist and juicy.
